My optical dessert has been a rich and dark juice made from beets, carrots, ginger and apples. I had forgotten the zing of raw beets and the intensity of their flavour. I bought some rice paper today and I am going to look for a soft brush and do some mark-making tomorrow when my Omega juicer has made its magic.
And today, Ming Nu Di Huang Wan pills from the herbalist in Chinatown and a pot of chrysanthemum tea.
I guess it's time to mention the 'eye guy' surgeon I saw again this morning. He said that the 2 kinds of chemical drops I'm using should ease the retinal swelling in two weeks and that I could resume any physical endeavors I might choose. While I totally flunked the 'reading the print test', he insists that time and a corrective lens would make reading a non LARGE PRINT book well within my grasp. (by the way, the selection of library L.P. books is not great)
